Momentum 2016: Commercial Real Estate Outlook

Lisa Sincere named Partner at Selzer Gurvitch

Lisa Sincere

Selzer Gurvitch is pleased to announce that real estate attorney Lisa Sincere has been named a partner at the firm. Lisa’s practice is divided between commercial real estate transactions (buying, selling, financing and developing), leasing deals for medical, office, warehouse and retail space, and related business and tax planning matters related to forming new corporate entities and structuring existing ones for succession planning. Her client list is as diverse as it is distinguished, consisting of banks, private & non-institutional lenders, custom & commercial home builders and prominent individuals, many of whom are among the area’s leading entrepreneurs and community leaders.

Having spent six years in the banking industry, Lisa considers lender representation to be her “sweet spot.” She understands the nuances and subtleties that make each deal unique and combines those insights with an attention to detail and a problem-solving perspective. The result is a track record of success that makes her – and her clients – proud.

After earning her J.D. from Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law, Lisa received her Master of Laws in Taxation, LL.M. from the Georgetown University Law Center. Admitted to practice in Maryland and Virginia, she is a member of the Real Property, Taxation and Trusts & Estates sections of the Virginia Bar Association and a board member of the Maryland Suburban chapter of CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women).

Story of Building Hopes: Joseph’s Journey – Building Hopes

Each time Joseph, age twelve, has had brain surgery – and it’s been three times – the first thing he wants to do afterwards is build Legos. Building Legos has helped him in so many ways and he wants to share that experience with kids battling cancer and other diseases.

Joseph wants to give back because he has been given so much. So Joseph, and his family started a foundation called Building Hopes. Through this foundation, Joseph hopes to inspire children across the nation to host Lego drives to provide Legos to kids in inpatient units and outpatient clinics at their local hospitals. Joseph thought of this idea following his last surgery and treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Joseph was the first pediatric patient in the world to receive oncolytic viral therapy during brain tumor surgery.
